TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- The large, bone-thin canines that have plagued an Osage Co. neighborhood recently have reportedly been moved, however, the Sheriff's Office is warning people there not to let their guard down just yet.

"(W)e are still asking you to use caution in the area, in case there are still dogs loose," Sheriff Laurie Dunn said Monday.

According to Sheriff's Office, the attorney who represents the owner of the Alaskan Tundra Shepherds had the dogs moved from their homes west of Lyndon over the weekend. But, Dunn notes, authorities do not know where the animals were taken.

Last week, 13 NEWS' Marleah Campbell reported that approximately 20 dogs roaming around a property about a mile an a half west of Lyndon were worrying neighbors.

"People are scared to let their children or grandchildren out in the yard to play,” Don Hook, a nearby resident, told her.

At the time, Dunn said her office had been dealing with them since June 2018. Several small animals and one person have reportedly been attacked.
